For those people who are more than theoretically interested in DVDs of this order that work globally, not than I have traveled globally, but am assured by the DVD's write-up to the DVD which has so much more than it has to offer from it's humble, and perfect, depiction of static and moving and more so core of Taiji Qigong (Internal training for health and so much more), but made aware to me thanks to petehowcroft and Amazon, not to forget Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming.
The DVD arrived on time, and in good shape, and the correct article. Once the disc was free and unleashed I was out of the world!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The book begins by defining chi and there is some history on qigong and taijiquan. It then goes on to explain more detail on theories behind chi and how it relates to health, the mind and body, and taiji training.
When I finished reading the book, I felt that I had a much better understanding of chi as well as the foundation and purpose of taijiquan. I can take what I learned from reading this book and apply it to my own martial arts training as well as to other exercises that I do to maintain general health.
This book is not something to be read just once and put aside. I will go on to practice more, incorporating what I learned from my first reading. I'll likely read other books from Dr. Yang Jwing Ming and then re-read this one. Although the first reading was quite educational, it will take several readings over time to be able to absorb all of this information. This book will be added to my reference shelf and consulted often.
